Games from those three consoles are included in the Nintendo Switch Online package which costs $20 per year. That’s actually a pretty great deal because that’s $20 for the entire year and you get to enjoy all those classics from the above consoles along with Cloud Saves, Online Play, Nintendo Switch Online App for your phone and more Special Offers.

The Expansion Pack

This expansion pack is somewhat of a better version of the Nintendo Switch Online membership. For $50, you get all of the bonuses and perks from the Nintendo Switch Online membership plus the ability to play games that were on consoles like:

Nintendo 64 which included great games like Mario Kart 64, Paper Mario, Yoshi’s Story, GoldenEye 007, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, and Ocarina of Time among other classics.

With this pack, you also get the Booster Course Pass for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the Happy Home Paradise for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and the Octo Expansion for Splatoon 2.

The price of this pack along with the Nintendo Switch Online membership is only $50 for a year. So this may be worth it more than the standard online membership alone.

You can also pay less, like $10 per year per person if you have friends or family who’ll also pay $10 a year. Up to seven members can split the payment like this while having fun together. But the prices of the membership and the membership + expansion pack become $35 and $80, respectively, with the family payment plan.
